Buy an Ektorp if you want to sleep on ektorp.
Ikea has been facing a very Ikea like problem of late. No, not an overabundance of meatballs. I said Ikea-like problem, not delicious problem. Apparently, a couple of Belgian teens have been sleeping in Ikea, made a video documenting their slumber party, and influenced at least 10 other teens to do the same.
C’mon, teens. We live in a society of laws, and we don’t have time for your feel-good, devil may care attitude. Don’t put your shades, when I’m talking to you.
The BBC reported that if these sleepover don’t stop, Ikea will be forced to call your mother—er, police. They’ll be forced to call the police. In fact, they already called the police on two 15-year-old Swedish girls, charging them with trespassing. They, apparently, never even made it out of the cupboards that they were hiding in because they were too afraid of setting off the alarms.
Ikea spoke to the BBC and said, "We appreciate that people are interested in Ikea and want to create fun experiences. However, the safety and security of our co-workers and customers is our highest priority and that's why we do not allow sleepovers in our stores. Maybe needless to say that the fun in it is overrated. A long night of sitting still, only to then risk getting into trouble with the law.”
There you have it, teens. Stop causing so much darn mischief and start studying or something.
